    I had an OM-D E-M5, and just sold it. :'( I miss it, but now I'd like to try the E-P5. I've been reading about the differences, but most of the readings I've done are differences regarding specs. What about personal difference? Does anyone own both? I'm wondering about the menu system. Is the image playback/review faster compared to the OM-D? When reviewing, switching, and looking at the pictures taken the feel is somewhat sluggish in my opinion compared to Canon cameras. I could press the button very quickly on the Canon, and have the pictures switch as fast as I press the button. It didn't feel like that on the OM-D. Is the E-P5 the same? How do the buttons feel on the E-P5?

    PS. I really want the E-M1, but money is a problem. XD lol

    I have another question. I've been watching the videos from the E-P5, and they look softer compared to the OM-D. Does anyone have original videos E-P5 online?

    This video doesn't look very good. :(

    It's so weird though since it has the same sensor as the OM-D. Andrew from EOSHD also noted the same thing. I don't do much video, but do like to make silly videos from time to time. haha.
